It’s been a little crazy around here…..
Last week Big Ran was in the hospital for a couple of days from a magnesium shortage.
Over the weekend Nic had the experience of a lifetime with his football team beating their rival for the first time in 8 years!!
And my dad’s brother, Larry lost his long battle with cancer. It’s so hard to see your cousins hurt that much. We only lived a half a block a part growing up. Larry had been saved. He and Dad are probably doing a little catching up.
I have also been planning the menu for Thanksgiving.
I hope to get the recipes to you soon.
Hold on tight to your families!!!
I just wanted to share with you a write-up on my son, Nic.
This is from www.gogriffons.comFBBlog.asp.
#36 Nic Burrell- LB 6-1 220 Gallatin MO.
Nic will battle for a starting role this year. He was a solid backup in the 2010 season. He played in all 11 games and recorded 16 tackles including a fumble recovery against Fort Hays for a touchdown. Nic is a physical and athletic football player. We are excited about his ability to tackle the football.
Fall Camp Right Around The Corner!!!
Missouri Western football players will report to fall camp August 10th where they will move into dorms, check out equipment, get physicals and handle all the paper work they need. The first practice will be held August 11th.
I know, I know, I am jumping the gun a little, but I am getting very excited!! I will keep you all informed on the whole season, don’t you worry about that.
Big Ran has already got our hotel rooms booked for all the away games.
I am ready to hit the road!
My son, Nic called from college last Friday and said, “You might want to get a St Joe Newspress a reporter interviewed me after practice last night and I could be in there!”
So, of course, I ran out and got a paper.
Here it is.
Coach Partridge said seniors Nic Burrell, Cody Kremer and Jake Buckwalter form the program-seasoned portion of the next tier of linebackers hoping to step in. Tom Madget is the corps’ only returning starter.
Burrell (16 tackles last season) noticed a team-morale and chemistry jolt this offseason due to the first playoff berth in four seasons and more organized skill workouts the GISC made possible.
“The whole morale’s different on the team,” Burrell said. “We’re in the facility practicing hard. Even before the coaches were there and it (wasn’t) mandatory. We were working hard together as a team. Everybody has a desire to win.”
This is my BABY!!
Love you, Nicolas!
